We already have quite a few plugs ready and will soon start the build of the fiberglass moulds, I will soon show them all sprayed with some surface primer, but today all I can show are some pics of our two part fiberglass hard top, hopefully of the liking of most here, following our no nonsense, clean lines and surfaces approach it will be a quite minimalistic fluid easy on the eyes part ......

This is where we are now, aplying surface primers to our plugs and almost having finished with plug´s carpentry jobs, we still have some small ones to build but we are at it, enjoy viewing what is being done across the pond ( just at the other side of Miami )

The cap plug looks great. I can only imagine how many man hours have been involved make it to this point. I also love the pictures with the hot cars!! Rag’s

Just stumbled on this thread. What a joy to read. Love the lines and curves! Congrats on your commitment and talents!! Canarian, I didn't see the transom deadrise in the thread. Is it 24 degrees? I really like the express model...

Hi BigWhit, thank you for your kind words, I try to make the thread "light" without too many detailed comments in order for it to be a light read and enjoyable ( if suceeded or not time will tell), our hull has 20.5 degrees at the transom, of course much more in the bow .......

It looks like you are making excellent progress on your plugs! Before you’re final prep before building a mold you may want to consider adding larger radii to the corners in your splash well and in your gutters. This will help alleviate the likelihood of cracking in corners and sticking on the gutters.

Hi MIskier, it has now 10 mm of radiii and we agree with you that is too little, we will very likely increase it a bit, thank you for your observations .........

The radiii of the cap plug have been enlarged form r=9.5 mm to r=12.7 mm and now it looks much better, in my next posting of pics the difference will become evident .......... back to work .......
